Welcome back to Top 5 Tuesday, where today we're going over the final Harry Potter themed T5T, featuring Slytherins! As always, T5T is hosted by Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm, who also gave us this handy definition of a Slytherin: They are ambitious, driven, goal focused, determined, prepared, perfectionists, adaptable, realistic, self reliant, charming, assertive, … Continue reading Top 5 Books for Slytherins
Murderville, GA is a brand-new podcast that I recently found through...something. I think it was probably through the Angel of Vine podcast's ads. (All ads aren't that bad, I guess?) When a brutal murder rocks a small Southern town, residents and police are shocked. Could the new guy in town be the one who who … Continue reading Podcasts: Murderville, GA
Two published posts in the same day? I think I'm losing my mind. However, I take full responsibility for this since I couldn't be bothered to post my Ravenclaw picks last week. As always, this is brought to us by Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm, who has gone through the trouble of finding the definition … Continue reading Top 5 Books for Hufflepuffs
Welcome to this week's DOUBLE FEATURE, featuring Top 5 Tuesday topics from both last week and this week! As always, this meme is hosted by Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm, and features me procrastinating like nobody's business, because this Ravenclaw segment was actually supposed to come out last week! That means I had to crack down and think … Continue reading Top 5 Books for Ravenclaws
Well, Internet, I went and did something on Friday that I have been wanting to do ever since I moved out on my own: I adopted my very own kitty! As backstory, this cat has been living on a friend's porch for several months. I saw her at our X-Wing Christmas party (Steven had to … Continue reading Meet Kiki!

Unlike Cabinet of Curiosities, this one is much longer and covers a wide variety of unsettling topics. Winner of the iTunes "Best of 2015" & "Best … Continue reading Podcasts: Lore
Welcome back to First Impression Friday, where I ramble on about the book I'm currently reading but have long since finished in the time it took me to schedule this post! This week's book is a sequel to Cry of the Kalahari, which I posted about at some point in the past. From GoodReads: After being … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “The Eye of the Elephant” by Delia & Mark Owens
This week's podcast is going to be something way more niche than the rest of the podcasts have been or will be. This week's podcast is my boyfriend's podcast, the Birmingham Barons X-Wing Podcast! This is a podcast all about x-wing, which is a competitive table top game involving ships from the Star Wars universe … Continue reading Podcasts: Birmingham Barons X-Wing Podcast
A few months ago, I received a very interesting email from Book Crate. "Try one month on us free!" it said, and I jumped on it. It didn't even require my credit card information (amateurs!). Severance was the book I chose (December 2018), and when it arrived I put it on the shelf and didn't pay … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “Severance” by Ling Ma
Welcome back to Top 5 Tuesday, where for the month of February, Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm has challenged us to find books relating to the different Hogwarts houses. This week's house is Gryffindor, and while I'm a Ravenclaw, I can appreciate a good Gryffindor. (I'd better -- my boyfriend is one!) I will say … Continue reading Top 5 Tuesday: Gryffindor!
